Shawty Lo has found out that he just hasn’t got quite the reach to make it in reality TV, after it was reported that his planned show ‘All My Babies’ Mamas’ had been pulled.
The rapper and founder of D4L Records had piloted a show that focused around his quite eye-popping 11 children that he’d had with 10 different mothers. Fertile. However, in a statement to MTV News, the show’s would-be backers announced they’d be pulling the plug. "As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special," a network spokesperson said yesterday (January 15). "We will continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation."
The pilot managed to leak onto the internet last month and faced a barrage of criticism, with many uncomfortable at Shawty’s somewhat unorthodox family set up. Talking to MTV about it last year, the MC didn’t go into specifics about the show, but did defend his skills as a father. “You can hate all you want to, I didn't ask for it. It just happened. Now that it happened, I'm supposed to turn my back against it?" he said. "If I wasn't taking care of my kids then you would really dog me out, but I'm taking care of my kids, providing for my family. I don't know what else to say." You don’t have to say anything else, Shawty, just please try and keep it in your pants.
